Kremlin: Vienna possible venue for Putin-Trump summit
QINGDAO, China (AP) — The Kremlin says that Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump have mentioned Vienna as a possible venue for their summit, but no decision has been made.
Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Saturday that Putin and Trump discussed the prospects for their meeting in a March phone call and talked about locations, with Vienna as a possibility.
Speaking in Qingdao in China where Putin is attending a regional summit, Peskov noted that “there have been no concrete agreements or understandings, and no specific discussions are being conducted now.”
Peskov added the issue also came up for discussion during Putin’s talks with Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz earlier this week, but he emphasized that Russia and the U.S. first need to come to an agreement.
